A young left-hander who would have made his first-class debut last season had Kim Barnett not passed a fitness test, James Pearson will hope to start his first-class career this year, though he is not currently contracted to the club. He has enjoyed success at club level for Bristol West Indies and is a confident left-handed batsman and pace bowler capable of terrifying club cricketers, but unlikely to be a serious threat in the first-class game as yet.
A fairly classical batsman, Pearson generally hits through the line of the ball. He has an upright technique, good sense of timing and a crisp cover-drive. (Sean Beynon, Copyright CricInfo January 2002)
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
